Capacity Building -- Father Dan Sullivan Clinic
One of the key components to strengthen healthcare in Sierra Leone is through capacity building of healthcare staff. Training in medical procedures and protocols regarding infection and prevention control will ensure that clinic staff can provide the highest quality of health services to those seeking treatment at our flagship clinic in Newton, the Monsignor Daniel Sullivan Health Clinic.
Last month staff attended a workshop on essential care for newborn babies and others assisted a team of surgeons from the Spanish NGO ACISS in surgical procedures at Christ the King Hospital in Waterloo. Proper hand washing, and infection and prevention control were topics discussed at a district health staff meeting and lessons learned here will be implemented at the clinic.
